Trustee & Secretary
Volunteeering

This is an exciting opportunity to volunteer for a charity that is passionate about giving young adults the chance to develop their skills and confidence, both for their own benefit and for that of society as a whole. Esteem works with young adults to run Wellbeing, Social, Mentoring and Volunteering opportunities, with a youth-led and asset-based approach.

This voluntary role of Trustee & Secretary will include duties such as organising and minuting board meetings and some administrative duties to support the board.  As well as the normal duties of a trustee, the main aim is for the Trustee Secretary to support the Chair and the CO in ensuring the smooth functioning of the board of trustees. This would also compliment other areas we seek to enhance the trustee team, which include a wide range of skills, and expertise in youth work, strategy planning, business development, financial administration and fundraising, as well as an interest in vocational and personal development for young people, combined with an in-depth understanding of our work and ambitions.

You will be jointly and severally responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, its financial health, the probity of its activities and developing the organisation’s aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines. All trustees should also be aware of, and understand, their individual and collective responsibilities, and should not be overly reliant on one or more individual trustees in any particular aspect of the governance of the charity.

We have an exciting opportunity for a youth professional to join our team and provide one to one and small-group sessions to assist young adults accessing the organisation. Esteem has experienced significant growth over the past five years. This role builds on previous work to ensure Esteem is a safe and inclusive environment where young adult’s can thrive.

Through this role, you will work one-on-one with young adults to build up social confidence, identify and reduce barriers or signpost to opportunities which provide more appropriate support. As part of this, you will support young adults moving on from the organisation in a positive way, linking to external services where necessary (eg. in the case of being too old to be a participant within the organisation).
